Je Suis Le Commun Des Mortels

Et bien…


Le Commun Des Mortels

A mon avis
Il faut quérir aussi loin
Que les banis
D’une ville sans enfants

Au-dessus des montagnes
Jusqu’à lenfer des bagnes
Je suis le commun des mortels

Sur le parvis
D’une cathédrale en feu
Je fais mon lit
Et j’attends la voix de Dieu

Au-dessus des connaissances
Jusqu’à la perte de sens
Je suis le commun des mortels

Toujours en vain la quête
De vérité en tête
Toujours en vain la quête
De vérité en tête
Oh Arrêtez cette pirouette

A mon avis
Il faut quérir aussi loin
Au-dessus des montagnes
Jusqu’à l’enfer des bagnes
Au-dessus des connaissances
Jusqu’à la perte de sens
Au-dessus des doucereux
Jusqu’à ce que je sois heureuse
Je suis le commun des mortels

(en Anglais…)

The Common of Mortals (the status quo, the average man)

In my opinion
One must quest as far
As those banished
From a city without children

From above the mountains
To the depths of prison camps
I follow the common of mortals

In the square
Of a cathedral in flames
I make my bed
And await the voice of God

From above all knowledge
To the loss of mind
I am the common of mortals

Always in vain
The quest
For truth
Always in vain
The quest
For truth
Oh, stop
This Pirouette

In my opinion
One must quest as far
From above the mountains
To the depths of prison camps
From above all knowledge
To the loss of mind
From above the sugar-coated
Until I am happy
I follow the common of mortals

Here are their rules:

1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

Since you read to the very end, you get an extra special treat:
